Officer In-charge of the Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO), Sr. Supt. Jose Chiquito Malayo yesterday announced that the local police force remain on red alert.
Malayo said the local policemen are performing their regular duties such as random checkpoints to provide safe living condition to the people and protect them against criminality.
Malayo said the assembly of the followers of Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) Chairman Nur Misuari in his residence in Barangay San Roque, show no sign of escalating into a violent situation.
Malayo however said that the police will remain vigilant and keep their guards up against any form of violence. “We are on red alert status ever since,” the local police chief said.
Meanwhile, Police Regional Office 9 (PRO9) Deputy Regional Director for Operations Sr. Supt. Ramon Otchotorena told Zamboanga Today that they will closely supervise and monitor the activities of their units in the field.
Otchotorena said they have no information on the alleged mass regrouping of MNLF forces at the provincial boundary of PRO9.
Otchotorena called on the populace here to stay calm and refrain from believing hoax information, “because the PRO9 is in control of our area of jurisdiction”.
